Upgrade 4-core to 8-core CPU in Precision T7600

I would like to upgrade my T7600 (Dual Quad-core Xeon E5-2603) to a dual eight-core. I'm eyeing a pair of Xeon E5-2648. Looking at the Intel comparison tool both seem to be similar in all features (except cores-threads of course). Is there anything else in the computer that could prevent the switch from working properly? Thanks a lot
